Second Thoughts You may recall we told you a little while back about the new album from Davy O'List. For those that don't know, Davy was a one time stand in for Syd Barrett and former guitarist for The Nice, Roxy Music & The Attack. Davy's new album 'Second Thoughts' was released on March 30 and we have just had a chance to listen to the album in it's entirety. All we can say is WOW! 'Second Thoughts' sees Davy returning to Prog Rock routes, a genre which he helped define in the late 60's during his time in The Nice. It's an epic powerhouse of sound, constantly moving & evolving. It blends rock, funk & jazz together, with an infusion of classical. The decision to keep the album fast paced was due to Davy's urge to create a symphonic styled record, which expands & develops into an ever changing chain of events. Track Bonnie K is a re-imagining of one of Davy's favourite tracks which he produced for The Nice. This new version provides an alternative spin on the well loved original. The final track Halfway To Heaven is a grandiose climax to the album. 'Second Thoughts' is a unique, exciting and memorable album from an eccentric artist who helped shape popular music of the late 60's & early 70's. You can listen to the title track from the album and grab a taste of what's in store. The album is available from Amazon UK | Canada | Germany | Italy | USA

It's Nick & Mick! The devastating earthquake in Nepal has brought together Nick Mason, Mick Jagger & Ronnie Wood for a charity single called "Save the Children (Look Into Your Heart)." Mick & Ronnie added backing vocals and guitar, respectively, for a session produced by Nick Mason at London’s Abbey Road Studios. Released May 5 on iTunes, "Save the Children (Look Into Your Heart)" features lead vocals by U.K. soul singer Beverly Knight and accompaniment from a 100-voice choir made up of members of Save the Children, a U.K.-based humanitarian organization. "So pleased this is finally getting a release," Nick wrote on Facebook. "It’s a great song that was enormous fun to record." All proceeds, distributed via Save the Childen’s Nepal earthquake initiative, go to aid the survivors of the April 25 tragedy.
Worth Checking Out Polly Samson (David Gilmour's wife if you didn't know) has posted a rather interesting clip featuring David & a couple of his back up singers on Facebook. We are told that if you take the silent part of the audio and boost it to see if you can get some headphone bleed, you might hear part of a track from his new album! (We are not sure of the legality of doing this but as it's only a few seconds a muffled noise we are hoping this doesn't upset anybody!)
Dave Kilminster It's Coming! You may recall that back in January we revealed that a new edition of Glenn Povey's "Echoes: The Complete History of Pink Floyd" was on it's way. (Read our review of the original book). Well the book is finished and set to be released on 8 October under it's new title 'The Complete Pink Floyd'. As we said in January, Glenn had authorization from Pink Floyd and Abbey Road Studios to dig through their vaults over the past several years and he uncovered enough new information (including the story behind "Autumn 68" from The Endless River) to warrant a new edition of his book. The new edition is illustrated with a stack of new material, including hundreds of photographs! This is a MUST HAVE for any Floyd fan and can be pre-ordered from Amazon (with a guaranteed price) from any of the following links. Canada | Germany | Italy | UK | USA
Roger Waters - The Wall To Be Released! The long awaited film, that had it's world premiere in Toronto last year, is set to be released later this year. The movie is an immersive concert experience of the classic Pink Floyd album and delivers an anti-war message. Part road movie, it follows Roger as he travels through France and Italy, visiting war memorials that have personal resonance. Written and directed by Waters and Sean Evans, the film, accompanied by an “in conversation” with Roger, will have a global event cinema release on September 29 at 7:30 PM in each time zone. Tickets will go on sale in the US summer. The concert portion of the film was shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos during Waters’ sold-out 2010-13 “The Wall Live” tour. The shows were seen by more than 1.5M in North America, 1M across Latin and Central America and 1M in Europe. It was the biggest worldwide tour by a solo artist ever. More details will be coming closer to the event.

RIP Doug Sax 1936-2015 Known as “the father of modern mastering” Sax passed away April 2nd after a battle with cancer. His association with Pink Floyd began with his mastering of their 1979 release The Wall, and he mastered all subsequent of the band’s releases as well as solo albums released by Roger Waters and David Gilmour. This was also the start of Sax’s partnership with producer/engineer James Guthrie, the two collaborated on dozens of 5.1 Surround and stereo mastering projects for various artists. Sax’s facility The Mastering Lab, founded in 1967, was world-famous with Sax and his colleagues credited for hundreds of releases including many Grammy-award winning projects. Sax was also the winner of numerous TEC awards and the AES Lifetime Honorary Membership Award. (With thanks to Julie Skaggs)
Bet You Ain't Heard This Before! We are delighted to bring you an extremely rare performance of The Final Cut. This is from a dress rehearsal for Roger's Pros & Cons tour from 1984. The date is either June 14 or 15 and was recorded at Isstadion, Stockholm (the tour began there on the 16th). At the last minute The Final Cut was dropped as the penultimate song of the first half of the show preceding The Gunner's Dream. About 100 people were in attendance for the rehearsal. The entire rehearsal was recorded but never released . Now you can hear The Final Cut in all it's glory. (With thanks to Anon)

UPDATE!!!!! The above story was published on 1 April (In Australia) It's actually Brit Floyd's bass player, Ian Cattell, taken from their current tour. April Fools!
